Junior Unity Cup 2014

Every year, my student council puts on a soccer tournament for the underprivileged schools in the area.  This is a special time, because 1) soccer is a huge deal here and 2) we have a really nice field.  So nice, in fact, that the Indonesia national team elected to practice at our school instead of their usual training grounds as they prepare to go play in Pakistan next week.  It was a really neat opportunity this year for the kids to play their tournament alongside the practice of their soccer (football) heroes!

After the national team was done, they agreed to come over to say hi and take a picture with our tournament attendees, which was super special.  Despite a few rough patches (a broken arm and the teacher asking us to pay for a witchdoctor’s treatment being chief among them), the day went really smoothly and fun was had by all.  I was especially impressed by my ninth grade volunteers who, after an entire week away on a missions trip, showed up bright and early and were so intentionally involved with the kids!
